Bastide Blanche is a family winery founded in 1972 in the town of Le Castellet in Provence, France. Their goal is to produce a wine that portrays the richness of the captivating terroir.
The wine, comprised mainly of Grenache as well as Cinsault, exhibits a wild and powerful nose combining notes of licorice, spice and black fruits. The wine is dense and fiery on the palate.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93
"The 2011 Bandol offers up a similar, traditionally styled personality with ample spice, underbrush, ground herbs and assorted Mourvedre meatiness that’s balanced by beautiful black cherry and darker fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with juicy acidity and a fresh, focused feel, it will benefit from short term cellaring and have upwards of two decades of overall longevity."
